The kitchen is the heart of the home!

Whether you’re a proud take-out connoisseur or an aspiring Top Chef contestant, the kitchen is where so many memories are made with loved ones over good food.

If you just moved into a new place or feel like you’re not equipped to make those recipes you found on Pinterest, there are probably a few things your kitchen could use. Like a durable pan that does the work of 8 pieces of cookware or a blender you can trust or perhaps a colander or fire extinguisher for the times you think you have it covered, but you start to smell something burning.

To help you make the most out of your kitchen and empower you to take on any meal with confidence, we rounded up all the items your kitchen should have. Why? Because adulting is hard, and we’re all in this together!
